Easter! This was our second Easter in Portland. I admit I always get homesick. I miss the Easter gathering at Nana’s and all the cousins. I miss our traditions. Being in a new city means, starting new traditions. Well, each Easter has looked different so far. This year we went to our church’s good Friday service and survived. Sorta. Evening outings with small babies…so much work! The kids and I made Holy Cross Buns and had one before heading to the service.
Easter Sunday we went to church and then headed back home to prep a simple brunch. we had friends over and had delicious food and then had a small egg hunt in our backyard with the kids. It was really so great. So thankful.
Back in Feb we got a new baby: a sourdough starter. I feed it twice a day & have been experimenting with sourdough bread, my absolute favorite. I’ve been making biscuits, waffles, crackers, pancakes, & my all time favorite pizza dough. I’m in love. Curtis & I even named him.
Curtis and I have been busy with homesteading stuff and its been really fun. I guess it has become our thing. Last year we started keeping chickens, (taking a break from that, such a sad story!) making sourdough bread, canning, making our own deli meats (yay vacume sealer), making our pasta from scratch, brewing kombucha and beer, and soon we will attend our own cheese making class. Curtis and I joke that we don’t have “a thing” that we both enjoy to do together. Turns out this is it.
